What’s Really App

whats really app

There really is an app for just about everything!

Here are three new apps developed by community members that are worth checking out:

Company: FlyCleaners (iOS, Android) 

Founder: David Salama

What they do: FlyCleaners provides on-demand pick-up and delivery dry cleaning and laundry service in Brooklyn. Simply download the app and set up your account and preferences. After confirming your preferred pick-up time, the company arranges for a friendly “FlyGuy” to bring a new laundry or dry cleaning bag to you and pick up your clothing. FlyCleaners’ partner facilities then wash, fold, press or dry clean according to your specifications. The app tracks when the FlyGuy will arrive, and users can select appointment times that work best for their schedules. TechCrunch, Vogue and The New York Times, among others raved about their business concept, service, and results.

Company: Priv (iOS, Android)

Founders: Joseph Terzi, Morris Sutton

 What they do: Priv brings makeup and hair professionals, nail technicians, masseuses, and personal trainers to New Yorkers’ doors. Unlike similar apps, which provide one-off services, Priv has created a full-service platform for booking at-home beauty and wellness appointments. Since their launch in March, they have experienced 63% revenue growth per month, and about half the apps clients have made more than one appointment so far. Priv requires its providers to undergo training and supervision, and customers can select professionals based on their bios, reviews, and portfolios. They seeded $1 million in angel funding with Alain Schibl’s help, and are expanding their app to serve Los Angeles, and London.

Company: GetKosher (iOS, Android)

Founder: Morris Sued, Charles Sued

What they do: GetKosher.com makes ordering kosher food online fast and easy. The site offers delivery from users’ favorite kosher eateries, as well as a reward program and gift card service. Users select the zip code and choice of service (delivery or takeout) and when they want to receive their order.

Born from their own experiences with inconvenient takeout, the father and son team committed to making ordering kosher food faster, easier and smarter – no more paper menus, calling restaurants, or wasting time parking. So far, the company has signed more than 100 New York City restaurants, providing delivery service from local favorites that never offered it before. GetKosher recently partnered with the app Kosher Near Me to make finding and ordering kosher food even easier. Soon, GetKosher is launching a redesign of its website to make it more convenient for mobile-users.
